Matthew P. Montaño, CFLE, MFTI, EMDR Therapist
Matthew’s background gives him a unique perspective on life. He comes from a very diverse family of Mexican and Native American cultures as well as varying religious backgrounds. Although he is currently a practicing member of the LDS faith, he grew up Catholic. He is very a-tune to different beliefs and the questions that arise in the polarizing debate of religion. Matthew grew up in California native and loves the ocean and In-N-Out. He moved to Utah for school in 2012. While in Utah he met his lovely wife and married in 2013.
Matthew has always had a passion for helping others get through stressful situations. As he was growing up, he was the “go-to source” for many of his friends who were dealing with family, relationship, or social issues. By advising and counseling his peers, his passion for therapy grew. He took his passion further by dedicating himself to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
Matthew follows his intuition, and while he was attending UVU, he developed two programs for individuals who are dealing with pornography addictions.
